Early years

A native of Washington, D. C., he attended Friendship Collegiate Academy Public Charter School, where he played football with Yannick Ngakoue and Teez Tabor, and basketball.[1] In high school football, he was an All-American defensive lineman. Considered a five-star recruit by ESPN and Rivals.com, Goldman was listed as the second best defensive tackle in his class, behind only Mario Edwards, Jr., who later on attended Florida State with Goldman.[2]

College career

Goldman attended Florida State University from 2012 to 2014.[3] During his career, he had 262 tackles and six sacks. After his junior season, Goldman decided to forgo his senior year and enter the 2015 NFL Draft[4][5]

Professional career


Goldman was drafted 39th overall by the Chicago Bears in the 2015 NFL Draft.[6] In his rookie year, he played fifteen games, recording 39 tackles and six tackles for a loss (TFLs),[7] while being ranked fourth among rookies with 4.5 sacks. For his season, he was named to Mel Kiper Jr.'s All-Rookie Team[8] and the Pro Football Writers of America's All-Rookie Team.[9]


Goldman played in six games with five starts in 2016. He suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2 and missed the next six games. He returned in Week 10 but was bothered by the ankle injury and was placed on injured reserve on December 23, 2016.[10]


Goldman played in 15 games with 14 starts in the 2017 season. He recorded 1.5 sacks, 44 combined tackles, five quarterback hits, and one fumble recovery.[11]


On September 7, 2018, Goldman signed a four-year contract extension with the Bears worth $42 million with $25 million guaranteed.[12] In week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams, Goldman sacked Jared Goff in the end zone for a safety.[13] The Bears won the game 15-6.[14] He finished the 2018 season with three sacks, 40 combined tackles, three quarterback hits, and one fumble recovery.[15] He received an overall grade of 89.2 from Pro Football Focus in 2018, which ranked as the 12th highest grade among all qualifying interior defenders.[16]
